On June 14, 7 p.m., at Deanwood Library, in costume and using monologue and original poetry, Marcia E. Cole recounts dramatic and imaginative escapes on the Underground Railroad. Tales highlight the daring exhibited and the importance of collaboration with black and white sympathizers. This will be followed by a discussion on wardrobe: even clothes have history. Marcia E. Cole is a graduate of the University of the District of Columbia. She is passionate about literacy, history and all art forms. Cole believes the arts are particularly effective as teaching tools.
